I mean...sort of? Like, people usually don't like changing what is status quo, or change in general, so you've got to win them over organically, hence "social change". The majority of people already...

Exactly. Equal Rights is absolutely a good thing to fight for, but I feel like a lot of people are forgetting the key to actual social change: you have to have the majority come around to your...

Just watched the pilot. Really liked the 500 days of summer vibes I was getting, in terms of style, and the setup and delivery of that Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon joke was amazing.

I'm 27, and like many others, I find myself only listening to bands where I really make a connection with their lyrics. I wouldn't say that some of the newer bands are immature necessarily, but I...

That interview did a good job of explaining a lot of that out. Yeah, that makes more sense anyway, though it completely changes how I look at the songs now haha. Still one of my favorite records of...

I mean, I've only seen them once since I started really listening to them and the only thing I could say would be that Dave's live singing could be a bit more refined. Other than that, I thought they...

This. They're just something about them that makes them completely unique, and I haven't related to a band in my adult life as much as I have them.

Only was able to listen up until "Underneath the Ground" before having to stop for work, but I'm really liking the record so far. From the review that you guys just posted, I expected way more...

This record is my favorite of the year so far and I still play it constantly. If they do end up slowing down as a band, I'd still gladly fund for them to keep putting out new music at least...I feel...

It sucks that the performance is so solid and not gimmicky, because the song itself is Rivers stating how he wants to write good music again, while doing so in a half-assed song. What's worse is that...

I think that Ms. Sweeny is the song that gets the closest to the "magic" of the the eras of the first two records. It sounds original, creative, not forced, and Rivers vocal delivery is on point,...

According to their Wikipedia, they've only had one "past member", so I think they're all still there. Their original keyboardist came back to the band.

What are your thoughts on the other clips they've released so far? I'm just hoping this will be a bad mark on an otherwise good album.

I'd say from listening to the live videos several times, that this song is so lazy. The chorus doesn't go anywhere melodically, and the lyrics are Rivers apologizing for his past mistakes and shitty...

The thing is, every other sample of this album sounds refreshing and inspired for them, and I think it's a huge mistake to be even putting this song on the record. It sounds so out of place. To be...

I agree. It's very rare that I even remotely love a hyped band that my friends are all into these days. I really enjoyed the new Fireworks album and the new Menzingers too, but that's about it.

I would be in for sure. I'm so afraid that they'll call it quits after this tour cycle. I believe the bassist was quoted as saying they have no further plans at the moment and it would be a damn...

Just bought it on iTunes and will probably pick up a copy when I see them in April. As always, they seem to be able to say exactly how i'm feeling. Fantastic record.

Add me to the list of loving the shit outta this so far. Listening on a mobile browser at the moment, so I can't see the track titles, but goddamn I enjoy it.

This, 100%. One of the most underrated songs on that record is Hummingbird Heartbeat. Every person I know that hates her, takes one listen to that song and almost always really enjoys it.
